This original hand-inked and hand-painted cel of Popeye is accompanied by a hand-painted background by Erich Schenk from a different, but contemporaneous Popeye cartoon. Black and white Popeye cels are quite scarce. The art has an image area of 15" x 10.75". The cel has paint loss and cracking, and it is in Good condition. Aside from paper tanning, and paint transfer from the overlay cel, the background is in Very Good condition.
